When it comes to classic cars, we at Powerspark Ignition do consider ourselves as specialists. This is why we have come up with a list of classic cars below that we believe you must drive in your life, whether you can afford to buy these cars or even to just to get behind the wheel one time they will truly be something special to drive. Continue to read on below to see these cars for yourself and maybe you don’t agree? Just kidding, of course you will agree, all of these classic cars are simply magical.

Volvo P1800

We say this with no disrespect to Volvo, yet when you hear the name Volvo your mind does not automatically go to a fast, elegant sports car. Despite this, the Volvo P1800 was exactly that. It was an absolute masterstroke in mechanical engineering, the two-seater model is extremely durable as one model has gone on record for clocking up over 3 million miles! The car was marketed between 1961-1973 and was driven by James Bond actor Roger Moore in the television series ‘The Saint’. The classic car produced up to 100 hp and had a top speed of around 110 mph.

Aston Martin DB4

Carrying on with the James Bond links, we of course have the Aston Martin DB4. It was produced from the years 1958-1963 and is part of a long stem of Aston Martin cars that were just machines of beauty. There is surely no wonder as to why this would be 007’s classic car of choice with its top speed 139 mph and 0-60 in 9.3 seconds, it would’ve made a mockery of any other car in the 1960’s. There really is not much more a luxury driving experience than an Aston Martin DB4 so if ever you get the opportunity to drive, do not hesitate!

Mercedes SL 300 Gullwing

The Mercedes SL 300 Gullwing was amongst one of the first batch of sports cars that were produced post-war. The car was the fastest production at its time in 1954. It was also the first direct fuel injection series production car and this meant that the classic car could reach up to 160 mph! There are still a few of these cars circling around collectors and specilaists, so once again this car would be a life goal for someone to even get behind the wheel.

Porsche 911

Now ending off the list of cars that you have to drive in your life as a classic car admirer, we have probably the most famous classic car of all time, This being the Porsche 911. The classic car absolutely oozes vintage and magnificence, it is an amazingly well-built machine that delivers one of the finest driving experiences known to man. With a top speed of around 150 mph, the classic car is much more than a pretty face. It truly epitomises the category of ‘classic car’.
